on gun control and it happens to be a democrat by the name of harry reid. >> right, a democrat by the name of harry reid, who has opposed some of the very kind of things that president obama is calling for a vote on this time. so, yeah, i think the president should nudge people in his own party to do the things that he wants them to do. we haven't seen him do it on gun control, certainly didn't see him do it on immigration and never did it on senate budge proposal. >> megyn: she calls it an empty gesture untied to political reality. if you watched that moment, he seemed to be implying that there were lawmakers there and one would assume it was lawmakers on the opposite aisle from the president who are going to stop gabby giffords and other victims of gun violence from getting a vote on this legislation. that's not the reality right now in the u.s. congress. >> you're right and look, anytime the president speaks in a venue like this, he's got several audiences and clearly what he's saying is not for the members of congress in front of him. as you point out. harry reid could have
't need the tax loopholes to avoid laying off workers. >> claiming they should get harry reid to pass one of two house bills to block forced cuts. >> so for 16 months the president is travelling all over the country holding rallies instead of sitting down with senate leaders in order to try to forge an agreement over there in order to move the bill. >> we moved the bill twice. we should not move a third bill before the senate gets off their ass to begin to do something. >> reporter: the president put pressure on boehner to bring the local republican congressman aboard air force one where congressman told reporters in addition to spending cut he favors raising revenues through tax reform. >> a republican with me today. it's not always healthy for a republican but he is doing it because he knows it's important to you. he asked them to continue closing the tax loopholes instead of letting the tax cut go through. >> but boehner got air cover from mitch mcconnell who blasted the president's approach. >> he refused to offer a reasonable alternative and he threatened to veto other proposals aime
, thank you. >> shannon: senate majority leader harry reid says he has the utmost confidence in fellow senator robert menendez. he has been mentioned in connection with an fbi investigation into one of his political donors. reid said that he is sure menendez did nothing wrong and proving that is what investigations are all about. >>> the next big legislative debate here in washington. guns. peter doocy has the latest. hello, peter. >> reporter: talk on capitol hill about perhaps trying to set up a universal background check system to reduce gun violence. wane la pear from the national rifle association said that wouldn't do anything. >> it is a fraud to call it universal. it willle never be universal. the criminals aren't going to comply with it. they could care less. you have already seen you are not going to computerize the mental health records. we ought to quit calling it right now a universal check. the title ought to be a check on law abiding people all over the country. >> reporter: senate majority leader harry reid who says he thinks it is possible to support the second amendme
by budget cuts and instead reach out to harry reid who did not get a call from the president to push him to pass one or two house republican plans to stop the sequester. cantor declaring, "house republicans have acted and time for the democrats to join us." time to get out the campaign trail and get to work. show us what spending reductions you prefer and let's find common ground. in the tit-for-tat fight, carney brought out charts on the president's plan to cut spending and turn it to republicans. >> there will be jobs on the line if the sequester takes place and the president will as he continues to do call on the republicans in congress to agree to avoid sequester. it is a wholly unnecessary uninflicted would on the economy if it were to take place. >> there were others like howard dean suggesting the president should let the sequester happen. to slice the pentagon's budget. dean telling the huffington post i'm in favor of the sequester. it's tough on things i care about a lot but the fact of the matter is you are not going to get another chance to cut the defense budget in the way it
, the president was serious, he would sit down with harry reid and address our problems. the house acted twice. we shouldn't have to act a third time before the senate begins to do their work. >> good afternoon, we heard the president say last week that he would he was going to be forced, because of sequestration, to let criminals loose on the street if he didn't get another tax hike. today we hear discussions from the secretary of homeland security we're going to have have to sacrifice homeland security efforts if we don't get another tax hike. this is a false choice and the president has been engaging in a rhetoric of false choice for weeks. as the spaker just indicated, we in the house have acted. there's a smarter, better way to go about trying to achieve the reductions in spending so we can get it controlled over the spending. and in the house, we even included measures that the president has proposed in his own budget. but yet the president won't support even his own measures unless there's a tax increase. so the president really ought to stop campaigning and come back to the table and work
that allowing it to dip below $970 billion. farmer aide to harry reid says the argument over government finances will only go so far. >> a couple of weeks ago i would told you we'd suffer shutdown of government but the likely outcome is for congress to kick the can down the road on the continuing resolution or c.r. keeps most if not all the sequester in place. >> once that is cleared it won't be long until they bump in the debt ceiling in august of 2011 led to creation of the upcoming sequester cut. the white house continues calling for tax revenue. >> no question we need to reduce the testify is it forward. the president put forward plan to achieve that goal and it has routinely consistently included balance. >> the g.o.p. view of course is that the president got his tax increase in the focus on the upcoming matters should be on cutting spending. if the impact is overblown, many republicans believe it will give them leverage in the next fights. >> bret: it could be a long few months. thanks. the senate finance committee will vote on the nomination as jack lew as treasury secretary tomorrow. he
of it on his way out the door. >> senate majority leader harry reid is hopeful there will be an agreement on the entire senate on the lew nomination tomorrow. >> bill: negotiators for the united states and other major world powers today offered iran a deal on its nuclear program. officials from six nations said they would ease some economic restrictions on iran if iran agrees to stop enriching uranium at an underground nuclear plant. of course, iran has repeatedly refused to do just that. and few people seem to believe this new round of talks is going to lead to any major break through. nevertheless, the new secretary of defense john kerry said that he hopes iran will agree to a diplomatic solution. >> there is a diplomatic path. there is is a clear way through this. and i want these talks to have their chance to work through before i comment further. >> hope as a strategy. israel has threatened it will use all means necessary to stop iran from building a bomb. iran claims its pursuing peaceful nuclear power only, not nuclear weapons. james rosen with the news live in paris. and, james, s
's book saying we have an idea for a trigger and harry reid quoted saying -- >> and you can hang all you want on this. >> bret: no, i'm just quoting the book. >> was to include revenue in that. shockingly balance was imposed by the republicans at the time. that is why we have the situation we have now. both sides agreed when the republicans voted overwhelmingly for it, as i will remind you that the sequester was designed to be terrible policy that shouldn't come to pass. what we hear from the republicans now unfortunately again, it will would be better to have tens of thousands of people laid off for fu furlough. thousands of kids thrown off of head start if the sequester kicks in than to ask corporate jet owners to give up their tax brack. or to ask oil and gas companies who have been making record profits and who are, you know, again and again, year after year to give us the taxpayers subsidiaries. that is not good economic policy. it doesn't make sense. american people don't support it. >> bret: jay, as always, thank you for coming on. i appreciate the patience in the breaking news to
million dollars in advising from harry reid who attacked him in the prime minister primary in order to boost the least electable republican for general election. if you say nobody should be involved in primaries, congratulations, you're being consistent. if you say i'm happy with the existing groups and i'm happy with the todd akins and richard murdoches of the world, no, crossroads can't get involved then you're not being consistent. >> karl rove thanks so much for being with us, we appreciate it. >> thanks, sean. >> sean: also coming up tonight, brand new information what police found in the home of the man known as the blade runner. a twist in the high profile murder case and our experts in the studio with reaction next and then watch this travesty. [crying] >> we're going to have the very latest, a three-year-old in a wheelchair that is patted down by the tsa in what was just a bizarre happening all caught on tape straight ahead. this is for real this time. step seven point two one two. rify and lock. command is locked. five seconds. three, two, one. standing by for capture. th
is a prime example in places like new york, new jersey, california. gun control is popular. but harry reid also has democratic members from places like west virgina, arkansas, louisiana, and alaska where gun control can be dirty words. here is senator reid speaking recently about his conversation with california's dianne feinstein about an assault weapons ban. >> she's talked to me about her assault weapons ban, a new one. she believes in it fervently and i admire her for that. i will take a look at that. as i have indicated to you folks, we'll have votes on all kinds of issues dealing with guns and i think everyone will be well-sized to read the legislation before they determine how they're to vote for it. >> reporter: so a tricky act ahead for senator reid as he balances risking his members and their re-election bids in 2014 and 2016 and going ahead with the president's agenda. bottom line, he has some serious work ahead and it will be interesting to see what comes out from the president's pep talk with members today. jenna? jenna: i know you read all the legislation by the way before an

to vote for it. harry reid has not had the senate majority pass a budget in the last four years. the senate, the last time the senate passed a budget was actually before the ipad had been invented. so you talk about how far ago that's been. families have to balance their budgets. most states like my home state of wyoming, we balance our budget every year. i believe we need a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. the president continues to oppose those sorts of things. jon: well, the president has said he doesn't think the federal government has a spending problem. 83% of americans disagree with him according to our latest fox news poll. they say they think government does spend too much money. why the disconnect? >> well, and nancy pelosi said the same thing this weekend on one of the talk shows. americans know the problem in this country is that we spend too much, not that we're taxed too little. and that's where the republicans and i are specifically focusing our attention on trying to get the spending under control which is what american families have been doing, wha
wallace on sunday morning. this was the president's idea. he approached harry reid with the idea. >> and they agreed to it. bill: house spub republicans voted twice to avoid and eventually capitulated. a lot of fingerprints. hang on alan. >> they vote the two to one for this. bill: in one second. in the end you're right about that. this is november of 2011 when the president suggested that any effort to veto or any effort to continue with these cuts would ultimately be vetoed by him. not my words, his. roll this. >> already some in congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. my message to them is simple. no. i will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts, domestic and defense spending. there will be no easy offramps on this one. bill: no easy offramps, tucker. forget about if the cuts come his way. no. how do we square that with what is happening now. >> i will say alan is right, that the republicans agreed to this. they didn't think it would come to this. this is again, a brilliant negotiating ploy on the part of the president, unfortunately i
